Correspondence training differs from distance learning in that you receive lessons in the mail. You have a certain amount of time to complete and return the lessons for a grade.
Payment amounts are made quarterly after VA receives certification of lessons completed from the school.
Correspondence training is not available for children training under the Dependents Education Assistance (DEA) program.
For the Post-9/11 GI Bill, VA reimburses the lesser of the net actual costs for in-state tuition and fees or the maximum amount allowed by law. See our Post-9/11 GI Bill Rates page for details.
For all other GI Bill recipients, VA will reimburse 55% of the approved costs.
